Favorite Quotes from Shania Twain

“I lost my sense of trust, honesty, and compassion. I crashed down and became what I consider an emotional mess. I’ve never been so miserable in my whole life. I just wanted to go to bed and never get up.” – Shania Twain

“Because I think it stifles you creatively. I don’t want to have to care too much about that. All I care about is what the fans think. It’s really all I care about, honestly.” – Shania Twain

“Yes, you can lose somebody overnight, yes, your whole life can be turned upside down. Life is short. It can come and go like a feather in the wind.” – Shania Twain

“I certainly don’t think you need to be famous to want to leave a legacy, but when you are famous, it’s even more likely that your child will get the wrong perspective on your life if you die prematurely.” – Shania Twain

“Dysphonia is not a singing problem. It’s a voice box issue in the muscle on the voice, very different from having a nodule on the vocal cords, which I’ve never had. I’m lucky that I’ve never had that. It needs a long renewal time, and even today, I am still addressing it.” – Shania Twain

2. Look Towards the Future 

“From this moment, as long as I live, I will love you, I promise you this…” Sure, at the outset it seems like “From This Moment On” is a regular old love song, but what we love most about it is that it taught us to forget the past, live in the present and dream of a bright and shiny future.

 

3. Enjoy the Trip 

“We mighta took the long way, we knew we’d get there someday. Life is a journey, not a destination — right? No one seems to hit that theme better than Twain with her lyrics in yet another smash hit, “Looks Like We Made It.”
